MATCH PREVIEW

Hampshire v Essex Eagles

Royal London One-Day Cup

 Sunday 5 June (11:00 - 18:30)

The Ageas Bowl

Hampshire welcome Essex Eagles to the The Ageas Bowl for their opening Royal London One-Day Cup match of the 2016 season.

Hampshire Squad:

Hampshire have named a 13-man squad for their opening RL 50-over match of the 2016 season. Tom Alsop, Lewis McManus, Ryan Stevenson and Brad Wheal could all be given an opportunity in the first-team after being named in the squad, whilst Will Smith is also named after missing Hampshire’s last two NatWest T20 Blast matches through illness.

In the absence of James Vince, Sean Ervine will skipper the side.

The Opposition:

The visitors are likely to pose their biggest threat with the bat – Tom Westley and Ravi Bopara will be key men at the crease for Essex.

Recent Form:

Hampshire and Essex Eagles finished in the top four places in Group B of the Royal London One-Day Cup to qualify for the knockout stages – however, both sides left the competition at the Quarter-Final stage.
